"People have more access to medical information than ever before with an abundance of printed and online resources, and yet we still believe "facts" about our bodies and sexuality that are just plain wrong. Don’t PutThat in There! takes on these myths and misconceptions, and exposes the truth behind some of those weird and worrisome things we think about our bodies, such as:
•The average penis size is seven inches
•Squeezing breasts is all fun and games
•You shouldn’t have sex before the big game
•Anal sex will give you cancer
•Two condoms are better protection than one
•Pubic hair doesn’t turn gray
•Sex can give you a heart attack
•Only men have wet dreams 
•You can’t break your penis 
•You can run out of sperm
With the perfect blend of authoritative research and a breezy, accessible tone, Don’t Put That in There! is full of enlightening, practical, and quirky facts that will debunk some of the most perennial misconceptions we believe about sex and sexuality"



Written in a funny approchable way, Don't Put That In There!debunk all sorts of sex myths I never had. 

Maybe, that came out a little wrong. 

So let's start at...well, I'm not sure. 
What made me want to read this book was sheer curiousity as to what myths there are regarding sex? Beside the funny name and the cover promised something that while being informative will also be easy to read. 

Was that promise delivered? YES!

There are Many myths regarding sex, sexuality and the whole things involving it. I was surprised at how many (thankfully, I didn't hold any of them).

I think this book is necessary, especially for teens and people slightly-OK! just older- because sometimes you want to know something and you don't feel comfortable asking anyone. 

To those of you that will say- But we have the internet,yes, you are right. But guess what folks? the internet is FULL of information and not all of it true or relevant to what you want to know. 

Not to every question you'll find the correct answer. So, in situations like this (in order to avoid awkward moments) you can read this book. 

I say, it's a must in every home (Or building).
